Last year we went to St. George Island. Throughout the trip, he was distant, short, and mean. Just had that look the whole time like he disapproved of me in general.

D-Day 2 happened the week after we returned.

We went last week. I was really apprehensive about going and felt like it would feel the same. It didn't. It was great. We had a wonderful time. I didn't want to leave and I can't wait to go back.

We're both in our 30s. One awesome 4-year-old daughter.

My dd was about a month ago, and we were on vacation.

I still can't go through the pictures...a friend asked me for a few and I did what I had to do to find the few she was looking for, but I kept seeing them as a timeline. There were pics I took less than 1 hour before I found minute I was living the life I thought we had, and the next I was living in a lie.

One day I hope to find the same peace you describe.
